How to get Google Reader articles delivered to your Kindle

We’ve previously covered Klip.me, which lets users send web articles to their Kindle devices right from the browser. The same service has launched a new feature that delivers fresh Google Reader articles automatically to your Kindle every day for free. This is particularly useful for people who use Google Reader a lot but hate spending too much time sitting on the desk. Once delivered, the articles can then be read offline in an easy-to-use magazine-like format. Here’s how to get started with it.

(Ticketamerica.com has many seats available for the NFL Playoffs (nfl playoffs tickets) and the MLB Futures Game (mlb futures game tickets) and the MLB Home Run Derby (mlb home run derby tickets) contest.)

The service is simple and easy to set up. Once you authorize Klip.me to access your Google Reader account, you can choose a specific time at which you want the articles to be delivered. You can either have them sent everyday, or you can choose a specific day of the week. Furthermore, you can also set the time at which you want the articles to arrive. This way, you can receive all your articles in the morning and read them while on the bus or subway.

Klip.me delivers all the articles in a single file with a magazine-like menu that lets you navigate easily between different sources. Due to size restrictions, you can get a maximum of 100 articles per day, which, for many, is more than enough. If you find 100 articles a bit overwhelming, you can set the number of articles to a lower value, say 50 or even 20. Also, if you feel that the articles are from sources you aren’t particularly interested in, you can set Klip.me to retrieve them from a specific folder. A good way to make the most out of this feature is to sort all important sources in a separate folder titled Kindle and then set that folder as the default in Klip.me.

Sending articles to Kindle is free if you use your ‘@free.kindle.com’ address. The articles will get delivered only while you are on WiFi. Once downloaded, you can read all the articles offline. Also, if you have Kindle with 3G, you can use your ‘@kindle.com’ address which will make sure that you receive the files anywhere you are, albeit with some data charges. Since the maximum file size is 1MB, you won’t incur any heavy data charges on 3G. Nevertheless, I’d recommend using the WiFi version to have articles delivered in the morning, and then reading them offline throughout the day.
